Sails On The Lake (Sails Lake Taupo) is just across the road from the main beach on Lake Taupo and most of our rooms have spectacular views of the lake and the mountains beyond. We are just a short drive or stroll to the town centre and very close to all Taupo attractions.

We stayed here and found it to be very neat and tidy. The service was also very friendly and helpful. I would recommend to other travellers. Only hassle was getting out on main road to turn right with both sides of traffic coming through but turning left then going left again

Thank you for taking the time to review our Motel. The road has become very busy over this holiday period so I'm glad you found the other route. I'll mention it to other guest. Arthur

Had booked for two nights but loved the place as soon as we arrived so booked an additional night straight away. Arthur the owner was most helpful and friendly. Sails is located straight across the road from the amazing lake Taupo, perfect location! It is also an easy 15 minute

Staying at Sails was fantastic, the view was amazing and there were ample facilities. the sofa bed wasn't the most comfortable, however its a sofa bed, so what can you really expect. my mum had the double bed and it was very comfortable. I would stay here again.

This is a great motel, large comfortable bed, very clean, good tea selection, surprisingly quiet being on the Lake Front, a bit of a walk to get into town but lovely strolling by the lake, very efficient front office
